Sa lahat ng gustong makatapos ng pag-aaral kahit late na, katulad ko, mayroon talagang pagkakataon, mayroong talagang paraan para gawin ito kahit na sobrang busy tayo. Time management lang (To everyone who wants to finish their studies even if their old, like me, there are really chances and ways to do it despite our busy schedule. Time management it is.),” the It’s Showtime host added.

He also proudly shared a photo of him wearing a toga on Instagram, stating his full name, course, university, and distinction in the caption.
